With the implementation of a monthly video series in 2001, Spark
Contemporary Art Space emerged as the leading venue for Video Art in
Syracuse, New York. In 2003 Spark expanded, adding a second venue in Beacon,
New York and last season we expanded again, opening a third venue in London
Canada. For our current programming year, each monthly event will consist of
one SPARK VIDEO INTERNATIONAL program and one program of community based
video known as SPARK HOME VIDEO .The result is a monthly series that
supports local exhibition, stimulates community through International
exhibition and curatorial collaboration, and provides a new audience for
artists living all over the world.
Unfortunately and fortunately, Spark is a not for profit organization
supported by volunteers. Artist fees are beyond our means and dreams.
